Does Electronic Arts offer dental insurance?

Pros

-Great work-life balance. Even more corona many could work from home and at my location the office could be a graveyard with 20 people coming in on a given day -Great opportunity to work in many sectors of the gaming and entertainment community and make great connections -Forthright effort to diversify their workplace. This is the job where I've worked with the most Black and other minorities as well as women ever. -Benefits could be better, as some tech companies offer fully paid medical, they reduced their 401k matching to 3% throughout the year and an opportunity to get the other 3% at the end of fiscal, and NO COMPANY seems to get a good dental plan -Freedom to take PTO whenever. Now this depends on what org you are in as I'm sure most of the team members that work on making the game do not get that luxury but I have seen people go on a trip almost every month during the summer -Longevity. It is really hard to get fired here if you do your job well. It's not unusual for people here to look up and say wow it's already been 3 years. -Bonuses and Employee Stock Purchase Plan. You have a chance to earn 10% of your salary every year plus make 15% return on whatever you invest on the ESPP twice a year.

Cons

-Pay. EA is known for not having competitive salaries outside of upper management. They give you essentially cost of living annual pay increases. -Career mobility. There has to be a business sense to promote you.

Advice to Management

The company makes hundreds of MILLIONS of dollars, it's time to loosen up the purse strings and pay competitive salaries. Also, you should give good talent an opportunity to transition to another department to progress their career. No one wants to be a specialist or coordinator for a decade because there's no need for a manager in a certain org, department or team.
